The development of this town...

The development of this town dates back to the year 1560. It still holds a variety of old houses and buildings including clinics and stores which sell household Buddhist altars. These old establishments are still operating their businesses, and the whole town reflects historical image of Edo Era. The old house of Sugiyama family was built in the middle of Edo Era. The family operated the business of producing sake wine for many generations. The family members include a noted poet Isonokami Tsuyuko. The house was designated as an important cultural asset.

Yodoyabashi Bridge' in...

Yodoyabashi Bridge' in Nakanoshima connects the north and south of the central of Osaka to smooth the stream of people and traffic on the main avenue 'Mido Suji'. It was named after a successful merchant Mr. Yodoya who built the bridge with his own property. A gigantic brick-built Central Public Hall (now under renovation) was also built with the contribution of a single stock investor. It was typical for merchants in Osaka to squander their own fortunes on public buildings. Today, however, things have changed. Osaka is supported by all citizens rather than one rich person. The contrast between the stately Osaka City Hall and the superannuated Central Public Hall is a symbolic view of Osaka.
